Nice Ride

I really enjoy designing/drawing all sorts of rides, machines, vehicles etc. All the more if I work on Toby Skybuckle #1 (and that's btw what I'm working on day and night these days), which is full of weird rides and... but we'll wait and see for the book :)

Apropos, the inspiration for this piece (which is not for the Toby book) comes from one of my favorite artists, Jos Danilowatz:
